This morning I headed to California. I flew from Providence to Newark and then met up with my friend Chris from Dad of Divas. We were on the same plane for the second half of the trip. While we tried to sit next to each other or near each other it didn’t end up working out. It was a long flight but we each got some work done.
When we arrived we walked over the the Spectrum Irvine which was a big outdoor mall. We had a fun lunch over at Red Robin. I tried their burger in a lettuce wrap for the first time and it was very good.
Then we got back to the hotel to relax before having a great dinner with a bunch of the other #KBBDads. We went to Del Frisco’s Grille for dinner. It was a great night when we got to meet the Kelley Blue Book team and enjoy some delicious food.
Today I flew to California for four days and three nights on a Press Tour for some Disney movies and ABC Family Channel shows. I had been asking to be included in the tour for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie and luckily I was picked to attend. I flew out early from Logan airport and had a pretty decent seat on the flight. I watched a couple of movies on my tablet and read a few magazine articles including one on Chris Pratt who plays Peter Quill or Star Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy.
I arrived and met up with some other bloggers, we took a shuttle to our hotel, the Sheraton Universal and had a quick lunch. I was going to try and take a nap but that didn’t happen. I was up and ready to meet the other bloggers. One of my good friends, Chris Lewis from Dad of Divas was also on the trip. We are also imageloggers for Samsung and we spent each morning walking up to the Universal Citywalk and taking photos after getting some Jamba Juice.
Tonight after meeting the other bloggers we went for dinner at the ABC/Walt Disney Studios. We ate in the ABC building and watched three ABC family shows, Chasing Life, Mystery Girls and Young & Hungry. It was a fairly early night and then off to bed. Tomorrow is going to be busy.
